4th Grade

  • Native People's Introduction

    Posted by Jennifer Manley at 10/2/2014
    This week we learned about Virginia's Native People or the Eastern Woodland Indians.  We learned about the three Language Groups, Algonquin, Iroquoian and Siouan. 
     First we studied where in Virginia each Language Group was located.  We then discussed primary and secondary needs of all humans.  Together we decided that every person needs air, water, food, clothing and shelter.  We also decided that secondary needs are communication, protection and transportation.  Using what we already knew about the regions they lived in we made predictions about how they would fulfill these needs.  Next we researched using our Virginia Studies Textbooks and websites provided by Ms. Manley to confirm or correct our predictions.

  • Welcome 2014-2015

    Posted by Jennifer Manley at 9/8/2014

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

            Welcome to a new school year at Barrett Elementary School!  My name is Ms. Jennifer Manley and I will be your child’s teacher in 4th grade this year.  I graduated from Shippensburg University in 2011 where I majored in Elementary Education with minors in Mathematics and Psychology. Last year I joined the Barrett team, making the short journey from Philadelphia.

            I have lived in the Philadelphia area my whole life.  As expected I am a Phillies, Eagles and Flyers fan.  I love cheese steaks (but only ones from Philadelphia) and have seen the Liberty Bell many times.  I love animals, especially my 11 year old yellow lab Cody.  I look forward to getting to know each and everyone of your students.

            I am eager to get started with this new year and with this great group of terrific students!   I am confident that together we will have a fun and productive year filled with exploration and learning.  If you have any questions or concerns my email address is Jennifer.manley@apsva.us

    I look forward to meeting you at Back to School Night on September 17th.


                                                                            Miss Manley     

    Estimados Padres/Tutor Legal,

              ¡Bienvenidos a un nuevo año escolar en la Escuela Barrett!  Me llamo Jennifer Manley y seré la maestra de sus hijos este año en 4to grado.  Me gradué de la Universidad Shippensburg el 2011, con especialización en Educación Primaria y concentración menor en Matemáticas y Psicología.  El año pasado me uní al equipo de Barrett, haciendo un breve viaje desde Filadelfia.

              Toda mi vida la he vivido en Filadelfia, y como es de esperar, soy fanática de los Phillies, Eagles y Flyers.  Me encantan los sándwiches de bife con queso (pero solamente los de Filadelfia) y he visto la Campana de la Libertad muchas veces.  Me fascinan los animales, especialmente mi labrador amarillo de 11 años que se llama Cody.  Espero con muchas ganas poder conocer a cada uno de sus hijos.

              ¡Tengo muchas ganas de empezar este nuevo año con este excelente grupo de alumnos!  Estoy segura que juntos tendremos un año divertido y productivo, lleno de exploración y aprendizaje.  Si tienen cualquier pregunta o preocupación, manden un mensaje a mi correo electrónico Jennifer.manley@apsva.us

    Espero conocerlos la Noche de Bienvenida a la Escuela el 17 de septiembre.


                                                                                          Srta. Manley
